So in this movie are we rooting for them to succeed at the space crime? Is this like Dexter where one terrible person is doing terrible things to slightly more terrible people? What’s the angle? Why do we care about this space crime?

Oh, maybe it’s to see Boba Fett actually succeed at, well, anything.

People like Boba Fett. They think he looks cool and mysterious, he's flying around hunting glee-glops with an entire suit made out of Batman's utility belt. People like Star Wars. Make a movie with this popular character running around in Star Wars world, hunting down monsters, or getting set up by the Empire, or caught in some kind of space turf war, or involved in some big space heist, or having to survive a bunch of other space bounty hunters coming for him, or with space lawmen hunting him down for one of the few space crimes he DIDN'T do...this isn't complicated.

Same with Obi-Wan; people like Star Wars, they like the character, and even most people who don't like the prequels look at McGregor's performance as the thing they actually enjoy from them. Stop acting like it's completely baffling to you as how a movie could be made out of these things, or why people would enjoy them.

I’m sure people would enjoy a Boba Fett movie. I just think he’s an empty suit of a character that I do t personally care enough about to warrant a spin off film.

Im more confident that a tv series could change my mind

literally everyone in the star wars universe is : bounty hunter, rebel guerilla fighter, imperial soldier. why dont we see any regular people with regular jobs

i mean, i guess you see Luke's aunt and uncle who are 'moisture farmers', but where the hell are like, the tax attorneys and middle management? come on, star wars

The best part is that if you meet an alien who has a particular job or character trait or disposition, the in-universe description of their species is inevitably something insanely lazy, like, "Blargorkians all tend to be podracers," or, "Slapdanglers mostly come across as sneaky and ill-tempered," y'know, since the only one we met was a surly pickpocket or some horsefeathers.

Character is boring I cannot think how they make a 2 hour movie work with him but a 10+ hour television series about that boring character is right up my alley.

Nah, I'm just not explaining myself very well.

Basically, I think the IDEA of Boba Fett and the bounty hunters is much cooler than the USE of them in the movies. They are introduced as they total badass, bloodthirsty killers, but we never see most of them again, and even Boba Fett never gets to be a badass. The only thing he actually does right is track the Millennium Falcon to Cloud City. Beyond that, he needs Vader to help him capture Han, he never captures Luke, and is disposed of pretty quickly on Tatooine.

In a 2 hour movie, you might be able to give him some Mission Impossible styled mission, but you aren't going to learn much about him. In a TV series, they can create a much longer and more interesting story arc for Boba Fett (and the other bounty hunters) in order to flesh out what is a pretty two-dimensional character.

Literally nobody except you would be going to a Boba Fett movie looking for some kind of intimate character study. He's a clone of his dad, he's a space bounty hunter in a galaxy with a bunch of other freaky space bounty hunters, he looks cool, he doesn't like Jedi, he seems to have a thing with Vader, and he's likely in a bad mood since he was swallowed by a monster space-vagina dentata. JUST GO WITH IT.

Derwood might be seeing a little too much of himself in ol' Boba to want to see him on the big screen again:

So you're saying that Boba Fett has to register as a sex offender in 12 systems?

One of the more embarrassing things the prequels did was make every Stormtrooper a clone of Boba Fett. Oh, also Boba Fett is a Kiwi now

Why why did they do this

Well, they were all clones until they weren't (Finn wasn't, for example)

And they were clones of Jango Fett, not Boba Fett, but yes, still stupid

Pretty sure none of the First Order storm troopers were clones.
